near Rrogam, Kukës (Albania)

A legendary hike from Valbona to Theth in Albanian Alps. This is moderately difficult hike (depends on your fitness) through stunning Valbona Pass. This hike is only a day hike and can be completed with 6-10 hours (also depends on your speed and distance) but it requires 3 days in your Albania itinerary. I have written down the guide that will help you prepare for this hike. Follow the link below.
